patch to add path to FindDCMTK.cmake

Description of problem:
The current FindDCMTK.cmake file does not include the %{_libdir}/dcmtk path. Therefore, projects needing DCMTK fail to find DCMTK.

Attached is a patch that the DCMTK maintainer sent me. However, it needs to include %{_libdir}/dcmtk/ instead of "lib" or "lib64". I don't know how to do this though. 

Can you please push a small update so we could build packages. It'll be needed in rawhide, f15 and f14.

Could you please file a bug upstream: http://public.kitware.com/Bug/my_view_page.php ?  Thanks.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2011-07-22 23:00:13 UTC
I'm building cmake-2.8.5-2.fc16 in rawhide.  Can you test that please when it finishes?

updated patch

Hi Orion,

I'm afraid the previous patch wasn't enough. I've dug in and created this new patch. I've built it in koji here:


I've successfully built a package that needed dcmtk using the updated rpm with this patch :)

I've found a few bugs related to cmake on the dcmtk site. I'm going through them and will submit this patch upstream also. If there's something wrong with it, they'll know how to fix it :D

Thanks for looking into this.

Ankur -

  As I understand it, cmake automatically replaces "lib" with "lib64" as needed.  Could you try out a version without the /usr/lib64/... path and check?

Hey Orion,

I was trying to this when I realized I wouldn't be able to. I need to test this for x86_64. I only have a mock i386 rawhide configuration, and I can't run chain builds on koji for cmake and Ginkgo-CADx(uses dcmtk). Could you please try this out?

Sorry :/

The gingko-cadx srpm is here:


Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2011-07-28 22:23:02 UTC
I went ahead and fired off a build with the lib64 line removed:


When that is ready you can try a gingko-cadx rebuild.
